Intricate light patterns making beautiful representations in the dark, Makoto Tojiki’s LED installations are something to behold. For the last three years Tojiki has been bringing his work to life using LED lights, copper wires, IC, steel, ABS, PVC, Aluminum, wood, and acrylic. His latest LED piece, titled “Hope and Dream”, was exhibited last year to the L’ART DE LA RADIANCE 30th Anniversary Celebration presented by Clé de Peau Beauté, a Japanese manufacturer of luxury cosmetics, makeup, skincare and fragrance. He states:

“The forward direction of light always entices hope and dream. The young girl is always in pursuit of womanly beauty, not knowing womanly beauty is always pursuing her. Her loveliness and the gorgeousness of her reflected light will dance the radiant dance of luminous splendour, resulting in fleeting images that are as ephemeral and enigmatic as the passing shadow of a bird.”

- quoted from booklet “L’ART DE LA RADIANCE”
